Long-time CSN columnist and consulting editor Ian Robertson celebrates his 35th anniversary with the publication this March. A lifelong stamp collector, Robertson has been with CSN for much of its 45-year history. After joining Canada’s philatelic paper of record as a freelancer in 1987, he quickly rose to the rank of consulting editor and has since had more than 1,800 of his columns published in its pages. His regular columns include “Looking Back,” focusing on Canadian stamp subjects, and “Stamping Grounds,” an umbrella heading for a wide range of topics. He also submits two occasional titles, including “News Bites,” which reports on current events with a stamp-related focus, and “Pot Pourri,” highlighting a medley of hobby-related information. “Ian’s knowledge and passion for philately, combined with his professional experience as a journalist, are great assets for Canadian Stamp News,” said CSN editor Mike Walsh, the managing partner of Trajan Publishing. “He understands the day-to-day workings of a publication like CSN, which helps us to deliver compelling content.” Continue reading →
